    Eclipse Flight from Punta Arenas, Chile, Dec. 4, 2021

    ...got an e-mail from John Beattie stating that the Falklands are not available as an “Alternate Airport” in case of emergency for the upcoming eclipse flights. Therefore LATAM has to use widebody 787’s instead of the Airbus 321’s. This added costs shared by LATAM and TEI Travel, and John...

    2020 Eclipse Success Despite United Airlines/Air Canada

    Liz and I are exceptionally grateful to Canadian eclipse chaser Stephen Bedingfield, without whose persistence we might have missed upcoming Dec. 14 eclipse. We knew he had originally planned an independent tour as we had, and had to give it up due to the uncertainty of Argentine COVID...

    First Total Eclipse Cloud Out

    :-( Liz and I are on the Paul Gauguin cruise ship, from which I successfully observed the 2010 eclipse: We were not so lucky this time. It's been continuously cloudy ever since we left Tahiti June 26. We reached Pitcairn Island, where descendants of the Bounty mutineers still live, on June...

    Eclipse Camping/Viewing Options: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming

    While I currently have a hotel room booked in Cheyenne, still an hour south of the eclipse, I am hoping to figure out a BLM dispersed site much closer or actually in the eclipse line.

    Indonesia Solar Eclipse, March 9, 2016

However, the eclipse path is near Raja Ampat in eastern Indonesia, which has long been at the top of Liz’ scuba diving bucket list. At the Long Beach Scuba Show in...

    Success on Eclipse #7 for Me and #5 for Lizardqueen

    ...to Cairns low over the Great Barrier Reef from Lizard Island, aptly named by Captain Cook. No surprise we were in Cairns for the total eclipse. The Cairns/Port Douglas area is very popular for tourism. However a tropical climate with onshore winds and mountains rising just a few miles...

    Annular eclipse trip to Lake Powell 5/20-22/12

    We all know rather well Tony Crocker's penchant (some would call it geekdom) for solar eclipses. With the centerline of Sunday's annular eclipse a mere six-hour drive away along the Utah/Arizona border, Tony talked Mrs. Admin and yours truly into driving down for the event. (Those of you from...

    Far East "Eclipse of the Century" Cruise July 2009

    Last year's China trip convinced me that I did not want to be on land in China for this year's eclipse, which followed the Yangtze River and exited into the Pacific at Shanghai. Last year's temp range while I was in Shanghai was 94/77 with very high humidity, and the tropical summer clouds and...
